I hope I will test and will tell about my results.

The scenario I've described (many OSes, Xen + quemu)
is for experimental purposes.
And my main goal in it is to get know more about Xen 
and its usage (especially in a heterogenous environment).

As for production environments,
we principally use Linux (and Windows with HVM in several cases)
and there are no problems with it.
